Important change at the Ashe County Farmers Market

This year, the Ashe County Farmers Market welcomes (for the first time) farmers from adjacent counties (Johnson, TN; Grayson, VA; Wilkes, NC; Alleghany, NC; and Watauga, NC). Growers producing homegrown edible farm goods (i.e.-fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, eggs, etc.) may apply during the Seed Swap. The market is NOT open to craft vendors from outside Ashe county.
